In brief: Not uncommon

Twenty two years post pelvic surgery with the only complaint of some pain controlled by mild oral meds is fairly good.
When pelvic surgery and RT used, one thinks of hysterectomy or rectal Ca for cancer. The intestine usually drops into the pelvis and RT causes fibrosis around bowel and bladder to produce discomfort. At 90 no other approach should be used for management.
